Malvani Bangda Fry Malvani Indian Mackerel Fry

Throughout India, one of the most popular sea fish is Indian mackerel, often known as Bangda in the Kokan region. In Malvani families, Bhajlelo Bangdo is a highly appreciated fish. The two best dishes that can be cooked are Bhajlelo Bangdo (Bangda Fry) and Malvani Bangdyachi Amti (Curry). A few different methods for frying bangda are, shallow fry on a tawa (pan) or roast fish on fire.

In our family, we often make shallow fries at home, and on nights when we go out, we like to roast them over a fire. Fish cooking over a fire is a lot of fun.
